Early cave paintings include elaborate scenes illustrating how intertwined man and beast were at a time when humans depended upon animals for sustenance, mobility, protection from the elements, and work. That relationship has changed. Houston-based artist Allison Hunter upends that dynamic with mysterious and powerful depictions of captive animals once again assuming a position at the center of our attention.
